BINGHAMTON, NY, DEC. 7, 2013
Hurd Motorsports, promoters of the world-class Broome-Tioga Sports Center facility, hosted the second round of the third season of their Winter Mud and Snow Scrambles Series. The series consists of nine rounds running from November through April and utilizing the multiple motocross tracks, grass-track and single-track trails of this massive facility. The series continues to grow and has been attracting new racers to this unique and challenging venue but also continues to attract some of the most experienced and talented off-road riders from upstate New York and beyond.
Round two dawned under overcast skies, with chilly temperatures in the mid-20s and a brisk wind that made it feel much colder. Mother Nature attempted to help by adding about an inch of snow to the ground the day prior to the event – after all, it is a winter series – but then the sun made several appearances throughout the day and turned any frozen tundra into a muddy, sloppy mess that made the racecourse a challenge to navigate.
When the green flag dropped for the start of the Expert motorcycle scrambles, Jared Jordan and Marcus Scutt-Cornell battled for the holeshot and the lead as they led the pack out of the first turn. Steve Ackley, Zach Lupole and Anthony Hoskins rounded out the top five.
Jordan set a blistering pace and quickly began pulling away from the rest of the field, and he started the second of six laps with a 16-second advantage over Scutt-Cornell, in second. Scottie Rich came through the scoring area at the start of lap two in third after a poor start that forced Rich to come through the pack from next to last place. Ackley and Lupole rounded out the top five.
Jordan continued to add to his lead, and he started the third lap with a 28-second lead. Scutt-Cornell held second, with Rich closing the gap from third. Fourth and fifth were unchanged.
Jordan was not letting up, and he continued to add to his lead, starting lap four with a 36-second advantage. Rich closed the gap on Scutt-Cornell and made the pass for second; Scutt-Cornell was relegated to third. Ackley was all alone in fourth and Hoskins remained in fifth.
Jordan was unrelenting and he continued his blistering pace, taking the white flag with a whopping 41-second lead, which increased to more than 50 seconds at the checkered flag. Rich, Scutt-Cornell, Hoskins and Ackley completed the top five.
When the green flag dropped for the start of the Quad Novice division scrambles, Devon Feehan led the pack out of the first turn with a huge holeshot and the early lead. Cyrus Homer, Scott Pierson, Dayne Feehan and Boedy Lamoreaux rounded out the top five.
Feehan continued to lead at the start of lap two. Homer continued to hold second. Dayne Feehan passed Pierson to take third; Pierson was relegated to fourth. Lamoreaux held fifth.
The top five remained unchanged throughout the next two laps. Feehan remained in the point position for those two laps to take the win. Homer, Dayne Feehan, Pierson and Lamoreaux closed out the top five.
